Light Talks about L16 Camera Complexity while Gearing up for Mass Production

Light Co. is gearing up for mass production of the L16 multi-camera. There are more than 3,000 different parts in the L16 camera, which are supplied from at least six different countries around the world. Once they arrive at our factory in China, it takes 60 sets of hands to assemble each camera. Our manufacturing team follows an extensive 79-step process—and that doesn’t even include the 13 times we check each camera’s functionality.

The company is preparing to start shipping cameras to pre-order customers on July 14th, 2017, less than a month from now.

  1. For a consumer product, i don't think it is wise to emphasize the complexity of the product. cannot help thinking the fixability of such product..

    1. That's a very good point that I hadn't thought about. Tho the good news is that there's very little to go wrong and the camera can be re-calibrated at home if need be.

  2. It's amazing that someone thought of this, and actually undertook the manufacturing process of it. If it's successful (even if it's 30% of what is promised), it will revolutionize photography in ways arguably greater than anything else, perhaps except for the making of the Point and Shoot and the DSLR.
